Switch Owners: Warframe 101

Hearing lots of buzz about Warframe but you don’t know much about it? No worries! This basic primer has all the info you need to hit the ground running and become a badass space ninja in no time!


Warframe Review

Better Late Than… Early

HIGH Wallrunning and gliding undetected past laser security systems.

LOW Getting through the initial haze of learning all the ins and outs.

WTF Wait a minute, this red spot on my neck was not there yesterday…


Gigantic Review

A Gigantic Amount Of Enjoyment

HIGH Tight controls make complex attacks a breeze, even in the most chaotic battles.

Nothing has clicked for me yet, although I’ve been checking out Skyforge in pre-release on PS4, and it’s got me interested.


Let It Die Second Opinion

Free-To-Slay HIGH The gameplay loop is incredibly addicting. LOW Getting one-shotted by Haters twice my level. WTF The prices of some items in the PSN store…    There’s a lot to be said for simplicity of design and a focus on core ideas. I played an absurd number of games […]

In 2026, a massive cataclysm will rock the world. Earthquakes will ruin nations, chunks of Japan will fall into the ocean, and a massive city-spire known as the Tower of Barbs will rise from the sea and beckon adventurers to explore its heights.  Oh, and a skateboarding grim reaper wearing 3D glasses will also be there to dole out advice to those who dare the climb.
